Altus- Complex Silence 22 [treetrunk 205]

by Altus

Published February 22, 2012


I'll admit to being dismayed when Mike Carss told me he didn't have any self-written liner notes for his Complex Silence 22 release. But he did add, "the track titles pretty much cover what I want to say."

The first thought that flashed through my mind was, "What could I possibly write, by way of introduction, to do sincere justice to his CS contribution?" I considered writing nothing; just letting the music and the track titles speak for themselves (which happily they accomplish perfectly).

But as the CS curator, I feared my silence might be taken as disrespectful of Mike's effort and his gift to the Series. So, as I was listening to his release again, searching for appropriate words and phrases, the music itself presented the solution. There was only one word I had to write:

Altus

Without doubt, Altus is among the elite best artists working in the ambient music genre. Indeed, his music, with every new release, helps further define the genre. The proof? His music inspires fellow ambient artists and listeners alike. Merely say "Altus" and we all rush to download his latest release, confident it will provide sublime listening and fresh inspiration. Music worth keeping and hearing again and again. Anyone who is a serious ambient music artist, curator, reviewer, or listener knows I am not overstating the case. And it's exactly that listener confidence and artistic consistency that defines Altus as a master of ambient music.

For Complex Silence 22 the Series is both pleased and proud to present: Altus
